Statue of Don Mihovil Pavlinović (Kip don Mihovila Pavlinovića)

 Podgora Split Croatia     more than a year ago

For a small place, Podgora has plenty of public sculpture. And it has not one but two notable memorials to Don Mihovil Pavlinović, a locally-born priest (1831-1887) who became a leading figure in the Croatian National Revival, a political movement campaigning for the right to self-determination of the Croatian people. There’s a statue of Don Mihovil on the main square (which is also named after him) by sculptor Stipe Sikirica (1994), while his grave has an unusual monument by sculptor Ivan Rendić in a colourful style reminiscent of Art Deco.
